/indiana-jones-5-director-steven-spielberg-chris-pratt/As the weekend was just getting started, it was reported that Steven Spielberg hopes to direct Chris Pratt in a new Indiana Jones movie. The Guardians of the Galaxy star is rumored to be Disney's top choice to replace original star Harrison Ford. Which sounds like a heavy burden to take on. But Chris Pratt doesn't see it that way. He is in no way 'overwhelmed' by the aspect of carrying on the iconic character for a new generation.

Speaking with MTV at on last night's Oscars red carpet, Chris Pratt refused to admit that he was even being considered. But he does think it would be very cool if it did happen. The actor says:

"It's all nothing until it's something and so far it's not something....I don't think it's overwhelming to contemplate....It'd be cool. No one's called me. (There's) A lot of talk about it. The pressure would come just because it's such a great franchise you wouldn't want to get it wrong, so for me it would have to be perfect to do it. We'll see, like I said it's nothing until it's something."

At this point, it doesn't sound like the next Indiana Jones even has a story idea in place. And it's only a great script that will pull Steven Spielberg back in. The director has helmed all four original movies, which kicked off with Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981, and continuing with Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom in 1984, Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade in 1989 and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in 2008. At this point, Steven Spielberg's camp say its too early for the director to make a decision. Though, it should be pointed out that Steven Spielberg hand-picked Chris Pratt to star in this summer's Jurassic World, which he is producing.You can check out the actor's comments in this video:
